. . .

COMMENT SYSTEM

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

MEDIA

Paper Antlers digitally and manually obtains images of the book, “To the Sun, Moon, and Stars” shared on social media channels (such as Twitter and Instagram) bearing the hashtags, #CarizaOpana or posts that tag my social media accounts (@paperantlers). I may share your photos in an embedded Instagram widget feed on my websiteor Facebook page. I may also obtain your social media usernames through this system. By default, I upload images without embedded location data (EXIF GPS). However, should you post photos of my book and tag me on your social media channels, I suggest for you to avoid adding embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on any of those websites and I, or PaperAntlers.com, will not be held liable for any form of damage that may inflict upon you uploading photos of my book on your own personal platform.
